Krugman: "The Argument Against the Public Option is Sheer Nonsense"

Paul Krugman lets 'em have it on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."

The argument by centrist Democrats against public option carries much leverage in the health care debate, but why? Yeah, we don't know either.

Appearing on "This Week" Paul Krugman made a great point regarding this perplexing fact, stating that said moderates have no "intellectual basis" to stand on when bad mouthing the public option and that their argument against it--which has been orchestrated by the health insurance lobby--is "sheer nonsense."

We'll just have to wait and see if the mainstream media decides to pick up on this meme now that the town hall distractions are flaming out.
